approach which the republicans proposed. and the american people decided they wanted president obama's vision. and that's the path we need to continue down so we can provide that certainty. but -- >> let me ask -- >> republicans, i agree, aren't interested in that. >> let me ask you about some other things that obviously have been front and center, and vice president bide met with senate democrats yesterday to keep the pressure on to get something done on gun control. here's part of what he said. i'm not saying there's an absolute consensus on all these things, but there is a sea change. a sea change in the attitudes of the american people. and three new polls show almost complete support, almost 100% support, for background checks in virginia, new jersey, pennsylvania. is this where we're most likely to see some legislation in this area? >> you know, i think so. if you heard, again, back to senator blunt's comments, that's someone who is from a pretty red state. he has been a strong second amendment supporter, strong supporter of just about anything the nra wants. the nra has clearly
